Databox

I believe Databox can be an asset for any company. We are a small company, but I can see the value for large companies too. Databox is a great fit for departments or organizations that need to put their data into a readable form without needing a ton of reports. Databox allows you to save time and put together a nice report without having to do too much extra work. Once it is set up, it basically runs on its own at the frequency you set. I personally receive a daily report and have it sent to the respective people on the day of our meeting so we can quickly review it.

Kibana

A scenario of great value of Kibana, we found it to use operational intelligence oriented to real-time monitoring of sales and new marketing campaigns, in this way we could make decisions live and not expect subsequent results. On the other hand, the graphic visualization web interface is basic but understandable for what is required.

Cons

Databox

  • Some types of data can only be reported on for 1-2 months back. Unless I'm misunderstanding the function of the software this seems really weird. I can't figure out how to report on Activities more than 2 months ago

Kibana

  • Not really an improvement area, but maybe provide templates to make creating views easier? Since most Kibana users will be non tech people.

Databox is an intuitive, well-designed platform that can be used by non-technical marketers. It is easy to learn, and while set up takes time, usability is high and the team has enjoyed creating custom dashboards and clients have also given us great feedback regarding its usability and value. While other BI tools are much more complex to navigate, Databox is a breeze.

I have really enjoyed using Databox and have seen the value of it in many ways. They also continue to improve the functions of it and grow their integrations and templates. I look forward to continuing to use Databox in the future, potentially even finding ways to incorporate it into other departments to help them with reporting as well.

Alternatives Considered

Databox

Databox is unique in its ability to report from multiple data sources. Google Analytics is the standard when it comes to web metrics, but it's just one of the tools that integrates with Databox. Tableau is fantastic for data visualizations and reporting, but it's much more expensive than Databox, so it's not ideal for everyone. Tableau is also superior with customization

Kibana

Stackdriver and CloudWatch are not as intuitive and easy-to-use as Kibana, and do not offer such advanced filtering capabilities.Google BigQuery is not really suitable for real-time searches.All-in-all, we used all three of these solutions as a complement to Kibana, either to improve the reliability of the logging infrastructure or for cold storage of logs.

Return on Investment

Databox

  • Honestly, Databox has been a bit of a pain for us these last few months. There are some things it just can't provide us, and some of our clients don't like it. Sometimes it takes too much effort to create a Databoard than it's worth. And since we're a HubSpot partner agency, we're limited to making smart lists for a lot of what we're looking for.
  • On the other hand, high-level reporting is awesome. And they're always updating the tool with new templates/features to stay ahead of the game.
Stephanie Tran | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kibana

  • One value is the open source version.
  • The costs for the cloud version are very affordable
  • Product support delivers as expected
